Frog Springs, also known as Frog Pond, Frog Farm, and Garrett Ranch.

There is one popular warm spring and many cold springs on this 320ac parcel of private property, owned by C-Punch ranch of Lovelock.

The springs are sometimes called Bordello Hot Springs, though this name is reported to be a legend started by Michael Michael (Doherty).

Burning Man had leased the property ~2000-2003? when they used it as a source of dust abatement water, and in preparation for that they had dug out 2 large cold ponds.

Various wells have been drilled at the Garrett Ranch, the first recorded well was drilled in 1924 (Sinclair, table 2, p 32). In 1937, the mosquito fish were stocked from Fallon (Stockwell).

Rumor has it that when the artesian well was drilled here in the 1950's, then the flow at nearby "Coyote Springs" dropped noticeably. Trego hot springs is located to the east.
